Only the Early Bird Isn’t the Worm As a freelance writer, I work from home. Many of my “work associates” are either (A) people who email me ideas or (B) people I email ideas to. Multiple times a day, I receive follow-up emails from members of category A. Sometimes they’re checking in on something they sent mere hours ago. I get enough of these emails that I cannot respond to every one, otherwise my entire workday would be spent writing missives like “Sorry, not interested!” Of course, I find myself on the other end of this hellish pitch cycle when I send follow-up emails to members of category B, usually no sooner than three days after sending my last note. All of which poses the question: What is a reasonable amount of time to wait before sending a follow-up … [Read more...] about Emailing for a Living Is Like Being Trapped in a Mason Jar of Writhing Worms

As the pastor of one of the largest Catholic churches in New Jersey, the Rev. Robert Stagg ought to be on top of the world: His church membership is at 4,500 families, his Masses are packed and the church facility is undergoing expansion. Yet the leader of the Church of the Presentation in Upper Saddle River is hurting. "I read the news about all these abuse cases and it makes me want to throw up," Stagg said. "It's a terrible thing." Stagg wants people to know that the predators don't represent all priests. "There's a percentage of the population that are abusers, and that's awful," Stagg said. "But ... we all have to be vigilant — it happens in every country in the world with all kinds of occupations." It's been a painful time for Catholics in the aftermath of this summer's Pennsylvania grand jury investigation that revealed sexual abuse by more than 300 Catholic priests of hundreds of … [Read more...] about Catholic priests say it’s a tough time to be in their line of work
It was 8:03 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 12, and my body had sent me a notification, via my throbbing skull: You’re probably getting the flu. Facebook, too, had just notified me, via an alert on my phone, of its own plan for me: “You and Rosie Schaap are celebrating two years of friendship on Facebook.” Over the next few days, my body followed up with a series of messages: you have a sore throat; you have a fever; you have the chills. In that same period, Facebook emailed me four times. “See Rosie Schaap’s message and other notifications you’ve missed,” it demanded on Thursday, then on Friday, then again on Sunday and once more on Tuesday. By Wednesday, feeling better, I was catching up on emails. “See Rosie Schaap’s message.” Rosie Schaap’s message? Had I missed something? I had not. “Rosie Schaap’s message” did not exist; it was the automatic notification generated by Facebook, about the anniversary of the … [Read more...] about Are You There, User? It’s Me, Facebook!
